Acquired in 1968, the approximately 1,369 +/- acres idyllic hideaway ranch/ retreat has never before been offered for sale. The property has a rich and storied history dating back to 1848. It draws its name from Lord Fincastle, former governor of Virginia, its notoriety from Dallas gangster, Ivy Miller and Las Vegas icon, Benny Binion.
Importantly today, Fincastle represents a unique, one-time opportunity for a new family, multi-family compound or development of a private fishing/ hunting club. In my opinion, Fincastle is an interesting and engaging hideaway property that is a blank canvas. Anchored by three spring-fed lakes of 60 acres, 30 acres, and 20 acres each fully stocked with fish. The property includes a range of habitat, wildlife and adventure throughout a great mix of rolling topography woods and open space. An idyllic hideaway that feels far bigger than its map.
The property is ideally located and easily accessed via paved roads and within 1.5 hours of Dallas, and minutes from Athens, and sits adjacent to Rainbo Fish and Game Club, Greenbrier Farms and other established improved properties and fishing and hunting clubs.
Fincastle is truly a One of One and an absolute Find. We urge you to call for a first look or share this with a friend who wants first mover advantage for one of the best investments in East Texas.
